Marcarini MARCARINI BAROLO BRUNATE 750ML 2009
"Marcarini's 2009 Barolo Brunate is drop-dead gorgeous. The aromas and flavors are a bit brighter and more floral than is often the case, while the darker, balsamic notes typical of Brunate are less evident. Instead, it is the wine's textural finesse and sweetness that speak loud and clear. Hard candy, dried roses and sweet red berries wrap around the textured, inviting finish. Classicists might prefer the 2008, but the 2009 is strikingly beautiful in its own way. Best of all, it will drink well pretty much right out of the gate."

Wine SpectatorShows more earth, spice and briar notes than cherry and plum fruit. Though pithy, the tannins are matched to a fleshy texture, showing good acidity. Will require patience. Best from 2016 through 2028.
